Update 4:49 p.m.:  Terence Crawford's attorney was able to obtain an appeal bond, and Crawford was released from the Douglas County Jail late Thursday afternoon.


According to the Omaha World-Herald, Omaha-native and junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford was sentenced to 90 days in jail after being convicted on charges related to an incident in an Omaha body shop back in September. 

The report from the Omaha World-Herald said Judge Marcena Hendrix also ordered Crawford to pay $6,000 in restitution to the body shop owner, undergo random drug and alcohol testing, as well as serving two years probation and 120 hours of community service.

The sentencing comes just days after Crawford defeated John Molina Jr. by TKO at the CenturyLink Center.
